TELL CITY - Larry Manley won the fourth round of a historical token treasure hunt sponsored by the Tell City Sesquicentennial Committee, earning bragging rights and gift certificates from Hauenstein's Mens Store, Ponderosa and Julie's Tell Street Cafe.

The token was located under a fire hydrant at the corner of Ninth and Jefferson streets. Clue No. 1 from last week, making reference to Saint William, refers to the original name proposed for St. Paul Catholic Church.

The story goes that the bishop in charge of the area visited the city one Sunday shortly after its founding and was dismayed to see Catholics clearing land and constructing homes on a day of rest and worship.

He reportedly told the community to name the church not after Saint William, patron of William Tell, but after Saint Paul, who preached to heathens.

Clue 2 from last week, referring to a business that served coffee and kuchen, pointed to the former Keck's Store on the site of the former Moose Lodge.

Round 4 Clues

Clue 1: The token is located on one of the stops on the historical trolley and walking tours.

Clue 2: My name has changed seven times.

Clue 3: The token is located near Plank Road.

The winner will receive an Echo power blower with power shield attachment from Fischer's Furniture and Appliance as well as a Kathy Van Zeeland purse from Celebrations.

The person finding the specially marked wooden token should contact Mark Laflin at 548-0778.

The tokens will always be located on the outside of public or city property, never on the inside of buildings.

There can only be one winner per family.
